support.com to Present "Making Agile Work Across Oceans" at Silicon Valley Product Management Association Meeting

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - November 3, 2009) - support.com®, a leading online consumer technology services company, will present best practices on applying Agile research and development methodologies in a multi-site development environment to members of the Silicon Valley Product Management Association on November 4 in Santa Clara, CA.

support.com is changing the way consumers manage their technology. It is also advancing a company's ability to leverage modern R&D processes across a global development team.

During his presentation, James Morehead, VP of Product Management and Consumer Experience at support.com, will detail support.com's successful implementation of Agile development (using the Scrum methodology) to a multi-site development environment and key learnings derived from its experience to help other companies better leverage their R&D investments.

"Agile development has played a key role in our ability to keep pace with the dynamic technology landscape and build on our R&D advantage in the technology services market. By sharing our story we hope to help other Silicon Valley companies get the most from their R&D investment," said Morehead.

Morehead will also discuss how Agile development helped support.com more rapidly respond to the evolving needs of today's technology-dependent consumers, more easily support a growing and diverse set of partners and make its North American Solutions Engineers more efficient and productive.
